Custom Tooltip

Hey everyone,

Big S here with another probably stupid-simple question.

I understand basic tooltips using the :SetTooltip method, etc. What I’m wondering is, how would I go about either editing that base tooltip method (or creating my own VGUI element that would mimic a tooltip) that would allow me to completely customize the way it displays; for example, giving my tooltips a textured rect instead of the default pale-yellow ‘chat bubble’ look. Is there a simple solution to this that I just haven’t thought of? Or if it’s a bit more complex, would anyone mind giving me a push in the right direction. Thanks in advance!!

i don’t think you can make a custom tooltip.

vgui.Register(“DTooltip”, PANEL)
